Last week, we applied for an upgrade on our Globe DSL at home and was given some options under their Project Freedom promo. The upgrades start at 8Mbps right up to 150Mbps and they give you additional gadgets to choose from.

Anyway, we bumped up our plan from 2Mbps to 10Mbps which costs Php3,999 a month.

Tattoo Project Freedom • Tattoo Home Broadband Goes 150Mbps With Free Gadgets

Realme Philippines

If you want the 150Mbps, that’s 24,999 a month already and is only available in selected area where fiber connection is present.

After singing the 2-year contract, they offered some freebies I could choose from — a Canon printer, BlackBerry handset, MS Office 365 subscription, Ayala/Newport Cinema credits worth Php2,500 or annual hotel memberships. You can just pick any 2 but they’ll also give you an extra Tattoo postpaid stick with 40 hours credit for free.

What I really appreciated during the upgrade was that I had a dedicated Relationship Manager that handled my account thru the entire process (including transfer of accounts, document processing, etc.) even as far as picking up the signed documents at home.

We’ll see how that 10Mbps works out when I get back home from my trip.

All of you guys complain about slow speeds for unfair prices, and in all honesty I do too, but it’s sad that the only reason most of the Filipinos want fair rate internet is to pirate aka steal, the irony is unbelievable, thieves complaining about thieves. If you lived in other countries you’ll know that high speed internet is used mainly for streaming, more often than not from paid services (which ISPs have partnerships with ensuring the generally lowered costs for stakes in subscriptions), gaming and the occasional download here and there. Most people here go through GBs of data in a month that other people in other countries would take a year to match even if they had super fast speeds.

Ridiculous pricing. I’m sticking with my P999/month, 3 Mbps connection. Unlimited pa talaga. I’m done with Globe and their bad service. Its the primary reason why I gave up my postpaid cell plan.

ganyan pala ka gahaman ang mga telcos dito sa pinas, kaya di ko na ako nagtataka bakit maraming free/hacked internet connection sa pinas.

I dunno. Aside from the ridiculous $580/month, unless you have a capable router and multiple HDDs in a RAID config, those maximum download rates would realistically swamp your typical desktop/laptop HDD when downloading stuff.

2,499 for only 10Mbps is too steep, considering how slow Globe’s service is and how bad their customer service. Other countries offer nearly 4x the speed for the same amount.

i applied for 5mpbs about 2months ago, 4.4mpbs lang ang pumapasok tapos may 10gig/day limit.

then i upgraded to 8mpbs. wala ng daily limit pero up to 7mbps lang ang attain ko.

ilan kaya ang actual speed sa 10mbps?

I’m pretty sure that 150 Mbps subscription will have a useless “fair-use” download limit that once you reach will cap itself to a pathetic bandwidth.

Puro kayo reklamo. Sige dalhin niyo yang mga plans nyo from Japan and South Korea and see if it works here. It won’t. Ganyan talaga sa third world country so just shut up

No, you shut up. We’d like to hear how things work in other countries. We’ re frustrated and we want change. If things get better, kasama ka rin naman sa pagunlad. I

There’s no way you can compare Korean Infra than the Philippine Infra , anlaaaaayoooo! Mahal dito kasi mahal ang infra, maintenance, and bandwidth costs na binibili ng telcos compared to Korea where everything interconnected. Kung may sariling infra lang tayo, eh di mura ung net natin…..

how about Corruption?
I’ve been waiting for a major player to come all along na kalabanin ang duopoly pero wala pa rin, busy yata yung mga opisyal na tumatanggap ng suhol.

Sorry buddy but I don’t buy your reasoning. Mababaw eh…Bandwidth and infrastructure are supposed to be getting cheaper these days. Sadyang marami lang talagang manyakis at gahaman sa pera sa gobyerno natin.

Im surprised you got someone to answer the phone to actually install/do anything.

Globe was miserable for me, i tried to get dsl installed and they kept putting me off or referring me to some system where i had to text a automated system that just goes in circles for hours.

Could never get a real person or real support. I had selected my packages online and submitted my order, and they never called.

When i printed the info from online and took it to the globe store they seemed completely lost, like they didn’t know whats on their own website..

Of course there will be VIP treatment. Surely they know Abe aka yugatech so they do not want to mess up with this person or else they will have a bad reputation :)

maybe for you to have a relationship manager you need to be in certain plan bracket meaning if pay higher monthly you get extra service.

And by the way “meh”, Abe went for an upgrade so he already had a rep to begin with. With yours it seems like you are applying for a new plan. Ganyan talaga mga Telco, it will take you weeks/months before your line will be installed. My suggestion is follow up with them every week. This way makikita nila sa records nila na you have contacted them already a lot of times. Pag umpisa patience lang talaga kelangan.
